Our Chaplains

Our ecumenical chaplaincy staff offers comfort and spiritual support to you and your family during your stay. We understand that being in the hospital can be stressful and often gives you time to think about family, friends, and significant experiences in your life. From the joyous birth of a baby to the anxiety of surgery, we know that chaplaincy services may be of benefit to you and your loved ones. We also respect the many faith traditions of our patients and understand the need for sensitivity as you face important decisions.
